Rosemary Jenks of Numbers USA and former state Sen. David Schultheis will make the conservative case. Daniel Carroll Rodas of Denver Seminary and state Sen. Lucia Guzman will make the liberal case.

The debate will be held just off the CCU campus at Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway, 7pm on Jan. 12. Once again, anyone may attend, but you will need a reservation. Email us with your name and the number in your party at
